Check with your doctor before purchasing these garments to ensure these stockings are right for you.
How Do the JOBST Maternity Opaque Compression Stockings Work?
Medical compression stockings such as the JOBST Opaque range work by increasing the pressure on the tissue under the skin, which in turn helps to reduce swelling (oedema) and leg pain. This also helps to prevent your veins from becoming swollen with blood, minimising any pain caused by swollen legs.
How Comfortable Are the Maternity Stockings?
We know that staying comfortable during your pregnancy is of utmost importance, and your stockings shouldn't compromise this. The JOBST Maternity Stockings have been designed to be as comfortable possible, offering the following features and benefits:
